re:GOLF November brings all types of changes to the golf course. First is the time change. The Bermuda grass begins it’s descent SWING into dormancy. The cooler weather also means a shorter playing window as we will begin to experience frost delays in the morning.

But rest assured, there is still plenty of stuff going on. The new line of Foot-Joy outerwear has arrived and will keep you warm and dry to enjoy all that Summit Chase golf has to offer.
